Aria/Dawn of Sorrow.
Castlevania is kind of dead, so don't expect anything but reboot monstrosities. You still have a bulk of handheld games to pick from. All of them play similarly to sotn, more or less depending on the title.
>tfw Konami literally don't give two shits about Castlevania anymore
We all feel your pain, IGA....
A 3D sequel for 360 and ps3 was announced at TGS 2007, but we got nothing more than a teaser
Which games will /v/ play today?
either rogue legacy, starbound, or binding of Isaac rebirth. Or nothing, idk.
I don't play video games.
Probably some h-rpgmaker games.
Diablo 3 with my morning coffee, then probably MH4 most of the day
So, what do ya'll think?
I don't mind the hit stagger as much as that ugly ass red indicator at the top. Just remove that shit entirely.
Also I like that there is a battle theme for day/night but holy shit there seems to be no ambient/field music.
They said that there would be weapon switching with the dpad right? Is it still in? In the latest footage left and right switches between special attacks so I'm thinking maybe not.
I did see a 3 hit combo with one weapon being repeated 3 times in quick succession on one enemy, while the set auto weapon switch combo at the time involved multiple weapons.
When Noct changes speed, his party members will too, naturally. It's all in the animation.
A red gauge appears when enemies are close. Encounter gauge. Then battle starts and it disappears (There's also an audio cue that kicks in when the gauge appears).
Lock-on is in of course. There's also an auto lock. When the red encounter gauge fills, battle starts. You can run before it does.
The current monster won't attack on its own. If you attack it though, it'll become hostile.
Triangle button is assigned to abilities, but it uses MP. Abilities tied to weapons.
Defending uses MP, abilities use mp, so keeping track of your mp use is extremely important in XV.
When the blue particles appear and you dodge, that means you're using up MP. MP can completely vanish if you're stuck in a sticky situation.
His two party members just helped each other while they were trying to move Noctis into a specific position. Killing this monster gets you Meat for cooking at camp.
Even within the same monster species, they come in different physical sizes, and even sometimes have different move sets.
Sometimes the enemy flashes. When it flashes, the following attack is gonna be real fucking strong. It's also a chance to counter.
After parrying, partner attacks can kick in automatically.
As your party grows closer, new partner moves are unlocked while they talk at camp etc.
They basically found a super strong version of the monsters they were just fighting. The queen. HP/MP recover automatically, but it's slow.
Apparently you can't dodge this enemies attacks, so he's gonna put everything into power/damage dealing.
You can change weapons mid-battle by jumping right into the menu. For example you want a different skill, so you swap out.
Behemoth Smoke Eye is one of the big bosses in the demo. Finding hints of where he went, and looking for him. AKA: big foot steps.
You can set your destination marker , making it easier to navigate there.
The blue shiny things on the environment are items you can pick up, some of which can be traded for cash. Though he's a prince.
The goal of the demo is to get enough money to get their car back. They gotta fix the car.
Beating Smoke Eye gets you a fair chunk of cash cause he's kind of a badass. They won't show any more of the main quest line.
Your party members will point stuff out, say they wanna go places etc. They serve to point out that optional stuff organically.
Night time! It's super fucking dangerous. Goblins! They're typically only in dark areas/dungeons, but they come out at night.
Night time enemies have a lot of status inducing attacks.

Jesus Christ it's FFXIII all over again.
Another Majoras Mask 3D thread: Why can't I steal the gorons hotel room edition.
Any changes that irritate you? Any changes you're glad they made? The Bomber notebook is kinda weird now.
I just got a "game over" in a gold skultula house. Game overs now just send you back to the beginning of the dungeon, no title screen.
the fastest way to grind is by using the zora boomerang game. you literally don't have to move from one spot. go there as soon as you get the giant's mask, and you'll get 5000 in five trips max.
And eavesdropping on Anju and her mom.
I can never remember to do that.
They fixed most of the problems I had with the original. They should have made playing the elegy of emptiness faster, though. That shit is annoying to play over and over.
The Bombers telling you what to do for sidequests is a bit much, too. The notebook hints should have been added from the gossip stones instead of from the bombers.
Hyperdevotion Noire release on the 24th in North America.

Nep-Nep discussion here.
>As previously reported, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II spans across three dimensionsâ€”Zero Dimension Neptunia Z: Ragnarokâ€™s Goddess at the Edge of the Cliff, Hyperdimension Neptunia G: Gold Bellwetherâ€”Gamindustriâ€™s Existence Transformation, and Heart Dimension Neptunia H: Trilogy Final and Thus into the Legend
I suppose VII will be the final main Nep game, huh? Or is it one of those franchises where they can continue as long as they want (whether its following the continuity, reboots, or neither)?
No idea. They originally wanted it to be a trilogy, but then decided to shove it all into one game.
They could probably keep it going on for as long as they like or until they just get tired. From what I've played in Re;Birth 1 the series isn't one sprawling epic, heck sometimes it feels like there isn't that much of a plot since it really isn't all that focused.
Which game was that for? Because since I only got into the series the fact that they wanted to make this a trilogy is news to me.
Scared you when you when you were younger and still might unnerve you somewhat today that are not horror titles/obvious jump scare moments.
These two levels from goldeneye made me want to turn the console off when I was a kid and the last time I played statue park a few months ago I felt really uncomfortable.
Wallmasters scared the shit out of me when I was a kid. First time I played Legend of Zelda I didn't know that breathing sound was the boss, and thought it was the hands coming out of the wall. They still freak me out a bit.
Eternal Darkness was GOAT when it came to 4th wall breaking scares.
I mean P.T. was kinda scary and unsettling but I wish more games took advantage of their console and did 4th wall breaking scare stuff again.
Silent Hill 1
When you enter the school you see some little ghosts that are afraid of you, they even try to run away and just fall on the ground.
I thought these monsters were the rotting bodies of dead children possessed by demons.
The ghosts were a representation of their last moments of life.
>silent hill 3,
that fucking red thing that chases you in the haunted house
>parasite eve 1
the endboss becomes invincible and chases you, if it even touches you, you die and have to battle him again

>Werenâ€™t too keen on using Wii U GamePad motion controls for the forthcoming Star Fox title for Wii U? Well, thereâ€™s some good news according to Game Informer. The latest edition of the magazine says that while the game features motion controls youâ€™ll still be able to play it in a traditional manner. The US magazine says â€śPilots can control the game either with their GamePadâ€™s analog sticks or motion control.â€ť
>â€śNintendo is planning on bringing Fox Mcloud out of retirement for a new entry on the Wii U. Fox will be able to fly his Arwing and seamlessly transform into a tank during certian sequences. Pilots can control the game either with their Gamepadâ€™s analog sticks or motion control. The game was very early in development and looked admittedly rought the last we saw of it, but weâ€™re hoping Fox gets the new, grand adventure he deserves.â€ť
Not even officially announced. You do realize that right?
Will the last boss have some asspull where the Starfox team combine all their arwings and landmasters into some giant mech contraption and smash Andross or whoever?
I hope so
>the rest of the team actually contributes in the final battle
I never knew how much I wanted this
>finally, after over a decade, star fox happening this year
>metroid for 3ds hinted at being announced this year
Where were you when Nintendo saved gaming?
Why the fuck aren't we asking devs to port more Japanese games for PC?
Why don't we make a fucking petition for Persona 5, Atelier, etc among other titles?
Or are you just lazy pieces of shit who don't want to make any effort then complain why there aren't more Jap games on Steam? At least try to share the already made petitions.
C'mon, we can do better idiots. Japs are finally starting to port games to PC, why can't we just go and give the final push?
Fucking pussies, I bet you don't even have a waifu AND a husbando at the same time.
Someone I know from a certain other forum, guess it's not you after all?
All three of those are already on Steam, with every major release this gen being assured a PC port.
Atlus now falls under Sega, which loves PC and has listened to petitions before.
Koei Tecmo twitter account has displayed signs of being based before.
>mfw hairy barbarian
>i wish japan had won WW2
They only need to commission a single port.
After that, it'll sell and future games will be guaranteed no matter what.
I er I mean someone already made a petition for persona 5.
if anyone wants to sign it, that'd be grand.
Would you donate 500 dollars to go on a date this Valentine's Day?
I can get several vidya for that or several figures of my waifu.
this guy gets it.
I should really just try to pester somebody on /a/ to draw her for me but I wouldn't really know what to even ask for and besides they've got four trillion requests as it is I don't wanna force my tastes on them as well.
This is why dota is cancer
The one time I got on a webcam I had a ton of gay guys hitting on me. Think I could get away with this? It was pretty creepy, but it might be worth it to make a ton of cash playing games and doing a bit of awkward flirting.
Just go gay anonymous
Think about it

Can I ask you guys a question. Why does the internet hate Call of Duty?
Because it's a shitty game that requires no skill whatsoever, and marks the downfall of the video game industry.
this game stinks, i just dont know why i bought for pc... its have 6k ppl playing this shit
I loved CoD: Black Ops
Does that count?
>>882I hate Call of Duty. And you're right, I do suck at it. But I also suck at League of Legends, but that doesn't stop it from being one of my favorite games.
I hate it because I don't believe the mechanics of the game have really progressed since MW2, yet continues to outsell many other games which are far more diserving of financial support on account of idiots 'knowing not what they do'.
Like oldschool RPGs like first Divine Divinity or Baldur's Gate? Like turn-based gameplay from Fallout? Like to play in coop with your friend? Then THIS GAME IS FOR YOU.Â
Join the ride on Kickstarter to help it to be even betterÂ
I'm looking forward to this one a really long time. Thanks for the heads up, hmmm that 300$ tier looks nice :P
I prefer Action RPGs. Might as well use the processing power of the PC for something.
I prefer my ARPGs free to play.
Street Fighter 4 ever!
